Which Social Media Platform To Post On?

It's a pretty busy, crowded, noisy virtual space out there in social media land. Where do you tend to lurk?  Diluting yourself across too many platforms can be exhausting (believe me I’ve been there), especially when you aren’t clear on your marketing message and where your ideal clients hang…

What is a fractional CMO?

You may already have a Marketing Manger or a Marketing Director, but to hire someone at CMO level, someone with 20 years marketing experience, is going to cost you an average of £100,000 in salary. 

That’s nearly £400 every working day, before all the additional costs of employment.

But how many days a month is that CMO really adding that level of value?

For many businesses, it’s better to employ that person just for a few days every…

Could an eCommerce store improve your current web visibility?

During the lock down I have been looking at companies that have succeeded. In this new reality companies that have embraced digital have been really successful – those that have not embraced online are suffering.

It got me thinking – how many companies aren’t online? How many are on-line but with a poor website – or not accepting payments. Or accepting them in a bad way.

It surprised me. Less than two thirds of UK small business have a website.…
